WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING IN THE NHS ?

The management machines are persecuting workers, forcing people who have worked on a particular ward for years to ‘relocate’ to another area, and to other ‘types’ of work: A care assistant is offered  a job as a cleaner of floors and toilets. Refusal to submit to these barborous demands leads to dismissal.

There is an extra barb to face : These long-time contracted workers are give Herculian tasks to perform. They are asked to perform the work of three; the aim being to force them to resign, so that workers on six moth contracts can replace them, both in their original places of work and in their new environment.

The ( six-monthers) do not  have the same standards of pay and conditions (including holiday entitlement), and are subject to continuous review. Before the end of their fourth review, leading to 2 years of employment, with consequent rights, they are sacked, so  the next ‘batch’ of management machine fodder is recruited.

Such ‘delights’ do not  just apply to care assistants; those ‘workhorses’ of the NHS- the porters- are as monitored as tagged criminals. Thier every step is traced. They know where they are ; how fast they get from A to B. League tables suddenly appear on notice boards. No names, just numbers, but everyone knows who is who.

How are such things known ? During a recent stay in a major hospital, I was repeatedly told of such practices.

A question arises: As vile as the Government-led attacks on workers’ rights, management toe-rags are but Government executioners.  Where has been the voice of unions ? Why have they been silent on the vile practices that are that are largely unknown ? Is there one ounce of backbone in the jelly of their spines ?

Organise. Recruit. Srike. Fight them everywhere. To the death.

The NMC- The Chains of Silence

Lenin Nightingale writes;

Those economically bound, are automatically bound to the chains of silence.

One way of ensuring silence in nursing, is to employ nurses who were trained overseas- a gateway to poor care. RCN- how many cases of poor care have been reported to you by nurses who were NOT trained in the UK ?

Dear NMC- will you please comment on this issue, and supply statistics ?

Who is buttering the NMC’s bread ?? Or, in other words, who is paying for their biscuits, coffee, and conferences ?

NURSING – A PLAGUE OF JUDAS IDIOTS

index

There are those who are mildly idiotic, a great many, for we all display that quality at times.

There are those who are very idiotic, and although their actions often induce harsh comment, we should always remember that we are all prone to being very idiotic on occassion, so judgement should be tempered.

Then, however, are those who are the fully paid up members of the Union of Idiots, whose repeated idiocy, in all its length, breadth, and width, never fails them; they never learn, for they are incapable.

Into this latter category seemingly and snugly fits NMC and RCN officials and their comments regarding the establishment of the nursing associate role.

The government inform us that the number of nursing associates will be in addition to planned nursing numbers – which have been cut, and will be slashed when nursing courses are paid for through debt.

The nursing elite inform us that nursing associates will “assist” registered graduate nurses.

This is like replacing police with cheap ‘special constables’, or an army unit with ‘reservists’; or a librarian with a ‘volunteer’.

They can not stop nursing associates being used as a cheap way to replace registered nurses. This is the end-game of neoliberal economics. The steps to this end-game are deliberately small, so as to conceal their ultimate direction.

Nursing associates will need to be regulated, of course, and therein is the 30 pieces of silver; for the NMC will extract a registration fee, and the RCN will tout for membership.

The old crew is being thrown to the sharks, gradually, almost unnoticeably, piece by piece.

The question becomes: Are NMC and RCN elites fully paid up members of the Union of Idiots?

Perhaps.

Yet, a darker reality presents itself: they know what they are doing, and, wishing to continue to be the handmaidens of government, attendees of policy committees, and pat-on-the-back conferences, they take their pay and are nothing more than government propagandists. (As an aside, I am reliably informed that a nurse lecturer recently read out verbatim a government policy statement as if it were fact; without a semblance of analysis).

It then becomes the case that those who believe them are fully paid up members of the Union of Idiots – whether lecturers, students, or nurses.

Yet another possibility exists, to introduce the mandatory level of synthesis, for some of the nursing elite may have convinced themselves that nursing associates will only ever be a top-up to the ‘real thing’; the sort of Blairite delusion which had Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction.

Whatever, nursing and the NHS is finished if you do not fight at a grass root level, and UNITE in a militant opposition to the forces of destruction and their Judas plague of idiots.

NMC agrees to regulate new nursing associate role
25.01.17

A new care role in the nursing family

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has today formally agreed to a request from the Department of Health to be the regulator for the new nursing associate role.

Jackie Smith, NMC Chief Executive and Registrar of the NMC said:

“After a thoughtful and thorough discussion, the NMC’s Council has agreed to a request from the Department of Health to be the regulator for the new nursing associate role.

“The Council recognised that there is strong support for the regulation of nursing associates and I have always maintained that the public would expect any role with nursing in the title to be regulated.

i.e.

Nursing is forced down the American route, and will soon be almost entirely populated by diploma-level nurse associates, who will be more flexible than Olympic gymnasts, running from ward to ward to maintain a modicum of staffing, being summoned by phone, not daring to refuse a split-shift or sudden call out. And in the most weasel words imaginable, the NMC again tries to hide from the abandonment of the degree nurse by saying it has ‘formally agreed’ to register the new model of nursing – pull the other leg, you have no choice, no more than any poodle who is forced to obey its master’s voice. ‘ After a thoughtful and thorough discussion’ –  stuff straight from the bed-pan!

The irony of ironies – those who are being thrown of the ship keep on paying the rabble who are doing the throwing.

Do you think that it will never be you, that it will always be someone else?

Is anyone really that thick?

Do you think that nursing is a 25 year, mortgage-paying career?

Is anyone really that thick?

Or Cowardly?

CUT OUT THE DRIVEL – PUT IN CAMERAS

index

As reported in the Daily Mail:  My comment in capitals:

Tens of thousands of allegations of abuse have been made against care workers but only 15 prosecutions.

THE SYSTEM IS CORRUPT

Figures show there have been a total of 23,428 accusations reported to local councils in the last three years.

But these are only the tip of the iceberg as only half of authorities would supply figures.

FORCE THEM TO DISCLOSE INFORMATION

According to the BBC’s File on 4 just 700 of the 23,000 cases involved the police and led to just 15 prosecutions.

FORCE THE POLICE TO PROSECUTE

BBC’s Radio 4’s File on 4 documentary through Freedom of Information requests to local councils across the UK.

Michael King, Local Government Ombudsman said: ‘What we see is just the tip of the iceberg’.

MAKE CAMERAS IN ALL CARE ENVIRONMENTS COMPULSORY

Bridget Warr, chief executive of the UK Home Care Association , which represents home care providers said: ‘I think that the challenges of too little money in the system from Government, through local authorities to providers’.

BOLLOCKS! ABUSE OCCURS BECAUSE ABUSIVE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED, OFTEN WITHOUT ADEQUATE CHECKS

A Department of Health spokesman said: ‘The abuse of people who depend on care services in their own homes is completely unacceptable’.

OBVIOUS AND MEANINGLESS COMMENT. WHEN WILL THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH MAKE CAMERAS IN ALL CARE ENVIRONMENTS COMPULSORY? IF NOT, WHY NOT? CUT OUT THE DRIVEL ABOUT ETHICS. IT IS NOT ETHICAL TO PRESIDE OVER A REGIME THAT ALLOWS THE ABUSE (SOMETIMES SEXUAL) OF ELDERLY PEOPLE BECAUSE THE COMPANIES RUNNING YOUR SHIT REGIME DO NOT WANT TO BE EXPOSED FOR WHAT THEY ARE, AS NEITHER DO YOU.

WHO OWNS CARE HOMES ?

This article is taken from Lenin2u, and is of immense relevance .

“Nurses, like Boxer, the workhorse in George Orwell’s Animal Farm, described as the farm’s most dedicated and loyal labourer, are being sent to the knackers’ yard in a van owned by private equity firms and driven by unions. The £15bn care-for-the-elderly market is expected to grow at 3.1% a year for the next 10 years. Everyone wants to be a part of it.”
